What Students Say:
Biology was one of my strongest subjects in secondary school and this course looked really interesting and challenging so I decided to take it. I like the whole subject and would recommend it to anyone. The practicals are fun and interesting; I always enjoy taking part in them.
I also like the topics you study; they are really absorbing and thought provoking. I think it’s brilliant the way lessons use different ways to teach parts of topics, like case studies in group work to help understand and remember moral issues.
When I leave College I hope to go on to do a degree in Forensics at university, either in DNA or collecting and analysing crime scene evidence – Victoria Price.
